to pay $170,000 of penalties in obama care. it's another california of texa government picking winners and losers, we are the losers. here are my options, do not pay the penalty, raise my prices and go out of biz, lay off employees who don't have to pay. and here's a quote from the other. since they're their high labor, low margin business, we're forced to consider bankruptcy, fire employees to get under 50 employee limit, close the location. we cannot escape many expenses such as rental agreements. >> sir, i think in the employer market about 95% of all american businesses are exempt from any kind of requirement to cover employer/employee insurance. they are outside the law, they continue to be outside the law but they will have some new options for those who want to cover their employment and new tax credit possibilities. for large employers, 96% already cover their employees. the penalty that you're constituents referred to is not a penalty that is imposed in 2014, it is being discussed with businesses about what kind of information is exchanged and it will take place -- >> i thank
. first to eamon javers in washington to explain how we got here. >> hi, tyler. the obama administration sees this one as a big win this week. remember that fiscal cliff deal that we had at the end of last year's crisis in washington? what they did was, they raised taxes, and they cut spending through the sequester. and that's had a fairly predictable result. it's been good for the deficit. take a look at this chart, and you'll see the deficit as a percent of gdp has gone down dramatically since 2009 when it was 9.2%. 2013, just 4.1%. 79% of the decrease the government says it due to tax receipts. record tax receipts in 2013, up $325 billion from 2012. that's up 13%. so the tax man is getting his cut of this improving economy and also as a result of those tax increases. that has led to this lowering of the u.s. deficit. that's something the obama administration says is a good thing. they feel like, you know, it's not getting enough attention here in all of this hullabaloo here in washington. >> a quick follow-up question if i might that kayla tausche raised. and that is all of the money
